Sea of Thieves continues to attract players from across the globe, but some players continue to experience the strangely named LavenderBeard. The issue is more common on PC versions of the game, but Xbox players have also reported experiencing the issue.
How to Troubleshoot the LavenderBeard Error Code
The issue may be related to a PC setting in the Windows firewall or proxy settings, or it may be related to a local connection interruption. Server issues may also be the cause of the LavenderBeard error. If youre experiencing this problem on the Xbox, the Support page suggests that you download the latest update or connect your Xbox Live account to Steam.
If you can't get rid of the LavenderBeard error on your PC, you'll likely have to change your Windows firewall, antivirus software, or proxy settings. You can disable your Windows firewall completely to get rid of the error, but we don't recommend it. The best solution is to reconfigure the firewall by following these steps:
It's possible that your third-party antivirus application is blocking Sea of Thieves connection attempts, so you'll need to disable or reconfigure your software to get an exemption from Sea of Thieves. Your VPN may also be preventing you from connecting to the Sea of Thieves, so try disconnecting any VPN you may have installed.
